Best of Bows + Headbands

By Jenna. I’ll admit that when the Ultrasound Tech told us we were having a girl I text Nicole and Emily and said “does this mean I have to start buying bows?!” Hair accessories were sort of the last thing I was excited about as I’d been turned off by the huge sunflower sitting atop of my neighbor’s babies head (you know the one I’m talking about.) As it turns out though I’ve found some beautiful (subtle) and well hand crafted bows and headbands that I’m obsessed with. Best of all these are ALL made moms themselves and I love … Read more

Appaman Washable Suit

Photos by Lindsey Orton. Holiday Best is perhaps our favorite topic to research for Threads. Seeing our boys all dressed up in their suits and ties, or their cozy sweaters and slacks, nothing is cuter. We’ve found suit shopping for little guys goes two ways: cheap, itchy, piling fabric that wears well once, or expensive high quality dry-clean only fabric that makes it hard to purchase knowing it will be too short and too small in a matter of months. Even still we tend to lean toward the higher-end selection knowing that big brothers have little brothers, and little brothers … Read more

We love Crazy 8’s new campaign, Shine On, which is all about celebrating individuality and what makes our kids special. They asked us to share the one word we’d describe our big boys and some outfits that help them be comfortable in their own skin, and here’s what we picked! QUINN: Maybe the best word to describe this kid is ADVENTUROUS. He loves the thrill of life. Whether it’s finding the best shrimp taco, riding the fastest roller coaster or swimming in the ocean searching for sea creatures, he’s always happily looking for the next fun thing to do! Being … Read more

FRYday : Nicole

Hi! Happy Holidays guys! Last week I was traveling and happened upon a darling little kids boutique in San Clemente called Red Balloon. There I spotted some darling red pajamas for the boys. I hadn’t started thinking about Christmas shopping yet, I typically wait until after Thanksgiving, just to make things easier on myself (wink). But this sparked my FRYday inspiration. CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS! In my home, we grew up opening one gift on Christmas Eve. Year after year it was the same gift, a new set of pajamas. This gift seems to be the clearest memory I have out of … Read more

cold weather clothes

Winter is quickly approaching and we’ve been building up our kids’ cold weather wardrobes. Whether it’s for sledding, or skiing, an outing at the park, sipping hot cocoa after making snow man, we’ve found that we aren’t trapped inside all Winter long if we have the right gear. FOR GIRLS:   1. Zara’s Winter line is really doing it right this year. So many gorgeous, affordable options. Nothing is prettier than a red wool coat on a backdrop of snowy trees. Right? // 2.
